An Overbooked Weekend...Not Complaining

Normally my weekends are my time to unwind...so I wasn't looking forward to this particular weekend as I had a conference, and industry gala and a Sunday luncheon to attend.


So far it has been a really good experience. The Saturday conference I spent at the People for Education Conference in Toronto (York University). People for Education are an advocacy group established to ensure that Ontario's publicly funded schools are addressing the issues and needs that…

Kid Friendly Boudin's - a seak peek!

At what age can a child hold up to an entire day of shopping? Well, if you ask my daughter, her answer would be "four!". My friend Devi and I had planned to drive down to San Francisco for our annual shopping trip but my babysitting fell through for the day, but that didn't stop us. We were motivated mamas! We altered our plans to instead head down to Corte Madera "The Village" instead. That way if Paige decided to call it quits…

The birthday blues....

Did anyone else catch last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? If so, you saw two moms plan over-the-top birthday parties for their two toddlers. And yes, I said BOTH moms planned and held elaborate parties. I mean in comparison, one of the mother’s really went overboard (as did her plastic surgeon regarding her overly plumped lips)….and the final event didn’t…

Guarding Our Home and Keeping it Holy

Recently, I heard a speaker say that, “the home is the domestic church.” Home is where the family flourishes, traditions are created, memories are cherished, where morals are instilled, and most importantly where our children learn their values. The church is place of worship that provides Christians with fellowship, instruction, and comfort.



Bringing our children to church is an integral part of their Christian education. The church is a wonderful place for families to gather and… Continue

My Family, Perfectly Captured in 1 Picture

So, here's where you would think I'd be posting the perfect holiday portrait session with my family- everyone smiling, dressed beautifully, the lighting is beautiful, just amazing. Or, for those of you who are getting to know me a little better, you might be thinking, 'No, she's not posting a portrait sitting, maybe a candid shot of her family on the couch or outside playing or something.' Ehhh, not quite.



During our morning coffee conversation, I mentioned to Z (my best friend) that I… Continue

Sheesh, who's in charge here anyway?

My two-year-old is getting really demanding these days. Not the kind of demanding that kids just naturally are, but the kind that's like... borderline diva. (Maybe wrong word choice, considering he's a little guy, but you get the picture.)… Continue

Tengo Un Gato En Mis Pantalones- Wait, That's Not Right.....

"Tengo un gato en mis pantalones.... You really need to learn to speak Spanish so we can talk around the kids without them knowing what we're saying." Words actually spoken by my best friend this morning.



But, wait. This is Tucson. My kids may not be able to understand what's going on if we speak Spanish, but everyone else's kids around us will. And, I don't think something's quite right. Did you just teach me to say "I have a cat in my pants"?



Well… Continue

Unspoil Them

We don’t get too worked up about a little mess at our house

My friend Emily over at The Motherhood recently asked me to co-host an online discussion about how to “unspoil” your child. Due to a scheduling conflict, I couldn’t participate, which was disappointing for me. I find spoiling kids to be a particularly annoying habit of many parents.

I started…

The Mac 'n Cheese Dilemma

http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2010/10/mac-n-cheese-dilemma.html\



Tis the season...the season for heavier and carbier foods. As soon as the weather gets cooler and I add my extra blanket to the bed and dig out my favorite fuzzy pink slippers, my body starts to signal that winter is near by berating with cravings for all things carbs! Seriously, like bears, I swear it's some biological need…

No One Ever Told Me…

I never held any illusions about having 4 kidlets. I didn’t expect it to be easy, I knew it wouldn’t be cheap, & I anticipated the years of being tied down to breastfeeding, diapers, & crying. I entered in to this with a willing spirit & a joyful heart. As they headed off to…

Who's watching the kids?

So I write this as my two little ones are settled downstairs watching Blues Clues and playing – well when my oldest isn’t yanking her toys from her little sister’s hands! Let’s be honest, if they weren’t watching TV, I wouldn’t be up here in the loft getting some work done.

This from a mom who swore that her kids…

Game on….or not.

This weekend I had the tedious chore of reconciling our latest credit card bill. Usually it’s pretty easy but this month I noticed a charge from an Internet company that wasn’t familiar. In fact, the charge description only provided an 866 phone number. So being due diligent, I called the number. Low and behold, it was a “store front” billing company and it was unable to let me know the…

Thursday Ramblings

Not sure what else to call this post other than that...I have things to say, but they are all over the place!



I'm now on my second week of regular exercise. Don't get me wrong I've always exercised, but I just haven't been consistent for the last few years. So anyway, this is my second week of building up my running. Last week I was walking 4 minutes and running for 2 minutes - do that 5x's. This week is walk 3 minutes and run 3 minutes - 5x's. I started that Tuesday and can now…

My Alzheimer’s Experience

Last week I was flying to L.A. for a speaking engagement. As I boarded the plane, I reminded myself how peaceful the flight would be. Flying solo is like a forced holiday. Flying with my gang is a big job and one that I spend a fair amount of time dreading. However, after the experience I had on that particular flight, I realized that maybe travelling with my kids is not so bad after all.

Two rows ahead of me, in the bulk head seats, was a very elderly man who walked with a cane. He…
